This Summer School will consider the relationship between the representational and abstract properties of a painting.

Working from a complex still life of commonplace objects, students will explore different ways of looking and seeing, discovering how the ‘everyday’ can provide aesthetic interest and fascination when looked at closely. Drawing materials will be used to experiment with a variety of compositional possibilities before moving into colour and starting to paint. Students will work on two paintings throughout the week with guidance given on how to select elements of their work to take forward and develop further. This is an ideal course for those interested in finding a way into painting abstractly.
